The former Man United manager went on TV this weekend as a pundit for beIN Sports, and delivered in more ways than one. 

The Portugese manager was recently fired by Manchester United, and in between jobs, the 55-year-old has been indulging in some punditry appearances, and featured on beIN Sports, offering a series of unusual albeit fantastic anecdotes.

Arguably the pick of the bunch was his admission of a long-speculated tale involving him being smuggled out of the Chelsea dressing room in a laundry basket. Lifting the lid on the hilarious event, Mourinho said: "I needed to be with my players and I did it, yeah." 

"I go to the dressing room during the day so I was there from midday and the game is seven o'clock. I just want to be in the dressing room when the players arrive. I went there and nobody saw me. The problem was to leave after. And the kit man put me in the basket. It was a little bit open so I could breathe.

"But when he was taking it outside the dressing room, the Uefa guys were following and desperate to find me so he closed the box and I couldn't breathe. When he opened the box I was dying."

In addition, he commented on Chelsea's summer transfers in 2004 and how it became an unfair advantage against other EPL sides.

He also took a shot at Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp, expressing the frustration at how he is perceived in contrast to Liverpool's and Man City's managers.

We don't know when Jose Mourinho will return to a head coaching job, but here's hoping he sticks doing punditry a little longer.
